"I am a 54 year old woman and I and another (younger) woman stayed for a week at this charming apartment with character. It had plenty of space for us. The kitchen was modern and it, the dining room and living room had wonderful floor to (high) ceiling doors that opened onto 4 balconies overlooking the street, provided light and a breeze. The street could be busy at times, but we weren't bothered by it at night since the bedrooms are in the rear. The main bathroom was large, tiled, and had a nice shower and lots of counter and storage space. We didn't use the other bathroom, which had a smaller shower. Neither of the bedrooms has a closet, however, there is a large one in the hall that we hung clothes in. The bedrooms on the main floor were spacious, however, there were no dressers or storage spaces for belongings. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom, which was small with a water closet and twin bed. The only thing that I think would improve the place would be to put light bulbs in the ceiling fixtures in the bedrooms and hallway to make them brighter. Both bedrooms had small desk lamps to light the entire room, which made them a bit dark. We loved the San Telmo neighborhood and one of our favorite days was exploring and photographing all the interesting street art and graffiti. We never felt unsafe, but we were aware of our surroundings, went with our gut instincts, and weren't out walking late at night. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again or recommend it to friends who want to stay in this area. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and interesting shops within walking distance, and it is possible to walk to the center of the city (Plaza de Mayo) if you want a little more exercise. We also used the Subte nearby, although if really late at night walking back from the station to the apartment would feel a little sketchy. Federico met us at the apartment and even arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and return us at the end of our stay, which was a considerable convenience. He provided us with a small cell phone that we could use to make local calls and there was WiFi, however, it was a little unreliable. We found it worked best when only one device was using it at a time. The owner of the apartment was easy to work and communicate with, so arranging our stay went smoothly. She also provided us with a list of places to visit, things to do, and restaurant recommendations. Overall great stay here and we hope to return some day."
